Hello, church family! It has been such a blessing to celebrate Easter together with you this past week. We hope you are continuing to be encouraged that our Heavenly Father continues to be at work in our world, with the same mighty power that raised our Savior from the dead!
We have recorded this next set of songs around the theme of the hope we have in Christ, and we pray they are a blessing to you!
Faith Brings Joy
"Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners."
"The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you."
"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."
